10 Observations From Glee Season 4, Episode 4: “The Break-Up” — Bedroom Scenes, “I Love You”s, and Tons of Tears!
It’s official: everyone who watches Thursday’s Glee Season 4, Episode 4: “The Break-Up” is going to end the night in tears. We’d guessed as much, based off all the spoilers and teasers we’ve read, but now we’ve actually seen the episode. And we can solidly confirm that our eyes did fill with tears multiple times throughout the evening.
So what can you expect from this game-changing episode? We won’t spoil the ending by giving anything huge away, but we will give a few hints about what’s about to go down. People end up in bed together. Flowers are bought. Kisses are exchanged. But don’t be fooled: this episode definitely isn’t called “The Break-Up” for nothing.
3. We already know that Rachel (Lea Michele) cheated on Finn (Cory Monteith) by kissing Brody (Dean Geyer). But is she the only one who cheated? A few others have been tempted. Whether or not anyone else actually acted on those feelings will soon be revealed.
4. Over the course of the episode, we will see two of Glee’s fan favorite couples in bed together. But don’t get too excited. This might not turn out to be as great of news as you think it will.
5. One character makes a shocking statement. Almost immediately, another character exclaims, “I kind of feel like I’m going to die.”
10. Remember that Season 2 scene that shows Kurt and Blaine running down the Dalton hallway hand-in-hand? We literally burst into tears when Glee flashed back to it for a second. At that moment, could you ever have pictured Klaine’s current situation unfolding in NYC? So many things have changed since then. So many things.
In all honestly, this entire episode is just a bit too much to take. It’s emotional. It’s heartwarming. Then it’s heartbreaking. But more than anything: It’s real. Relationships get tough after high school. Some might survive, but others most certainly will not.
In any case, what we need more than anything else right now is to totally drown our sorrows in chocolate. And we need to drown them now. Somebody pass us that tub of double fudge mocha ice cream, stat.
